One of my favourite things to do is go through my old artwork and redraw pictures. My second favourite thing to do is go through my old artwork, find characters I have either not drawn in a LONG time or only drew once and never again and actually redraw them. That’s exactly what I did here!
Unfortunately, I don’t have any of the pictures scanned in at the moment. Maybe I’ll upload them for a Throwback Thursday or Flashback Friday just so you can see the comparison between the two of them.
Top-left: I don’t remember if either one of these characters have names or not. I’m pretty sure that the guy on the left is a Shaman King fan character. I don’t know who the girl on the left is, but I want to say she is a fairy, whether or not that is actually true. Maybe she’s just a magical girl.
Top-Middle: The fairy with the music theme is named Musika. I don’t think the cat girl has a name. It’s really interesting looking at how much I’ve improved since I drew the original images – Musika’s outfit looks less skimpy in the original, while the cat girl looks like…I don’t know. She looks better in my redraw, but I don’t like her outfit all that much. It kind of looks like a cheap Halloween costume.
Top-Right: I can’t tell if the girl on the left was supposed to be “me”. Based off the character’s looks, she looks like she was at least based off a perception of myself at the time. Similar to Musika the fairy, the girl on the right looks a lot skimpier than the original to me. I think it’s a testament to how my skills have grown.
Bottom: Mindy Mitch is on the left, while another Shaman King fan character is on the right. Mindy Mitch actually isn’t even my character – she’s a character my younger sister made up as a kid and dressed up like once or twice before.
Do I plan on bringing any of these characters back?
Oh, HECK YES!
Maybe not Mindy Mitch because she’s not mine, but the rest of them, sure, why not? I would love to revamp my Shaman King fan characters into original characters – I think I even know what story to put them in!
I’m looking forward to doing more picture redraws in the future. They’re usually a blast to do.
